Well I was playing a game and I exited, but it wouldnt go to the desktop,(It was a black screen, with just my mouse) so I hit windows, and i thought it was clicked on shutdown so i hit down to go to restart but i selected msdos. So when i thought i was restarting a black screen cam up with the words, restarting in msdos, then it wouldnt load. It said it was missing a file or the file was currupted. This is actual script from the screen;
The following file is missing or currupted: C:\CDROM\OAKCDROM.SYS
There is an error in your CONFIG.SYS file on line 15
Device driver not found:'IDECD000'
No Valid CDROM device drivers selected
Bad Command or file name

I got it to go into safe mode to try and find those files, and I couldnt. I went to find file and typed oakcdrom=and nothing then i did CDROM=and got some confusing results that i didnt dare open.
Then I tried going to safe mode, then restarting and it went back to the msdos black screen
Then I tried doing the other options on the list and it was way too confusing.
This happened before when I was in 6th grade, and I remembered not touching it for like a day, then it worked. (father must of done something). And now im about ready to strangle my computer. Cause this game is the coolest in the world and now I cant even play it.
Sorry its so long.
